Pre-Cut Lash Bands vs. Studio Lashes - What's the Difference?

Lash extensions have become a staple part of many beauty routines around the world. The confidence boost and sense of empowerment gained when wearing luxurious lashes is truly remarkable!

How long do lash extensions take?

Unlike regular lash strips that need to be reapplied daily, permanent lash extensions grant you the luxury of waking up every morning looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed without having to apply eye makeup! This saves a lot of time and hassle in the mornings. It's also important to note that getting your lash appointments done at a studio is a time-consuming process; one treatment can last between 1.5 to 3 hours and, to make matters worse, you have you go back there every ~3 weeks for a refill!

Time is precious, and you'll save a ton of it by applying DIY pre-cut lash bands or extensions under the natural lash line. Sounds a bit odd, right? Under your natural lashes? Usually, lash bands are stuck on top of your own lashes. True, but here's the major downside to that: the lash band is always going to be visible, even if it's transparent, especially when you close your eyes and look down.

Even if it seems a tad complicated at first, with a bit of practice, you'll find applying GirlGotLashes' pre-cut extensions no harder than gluing on regular lash strips. And here's the big win: you just can't see them! Our extensions blend in seamlessly with your natural lashes and, even from an overhead view, they remain undetected! This gives you that pro-lash extension vibe - whether you're aiming for volume or a natural look - but without eating up tons of time. Once you've got the hang of it, you'll be apply to apply your GirlGotLashes extensions in as little as 15 minutes!

How long do lash extensions last?

Pre-cut lash extensions, applied underneath your natural lashes, last 5-7 days before it's time to remove them and apply a fresh pair. Granted, that's a shorter wear compared to professional lash extensions which last up to 3 weeks. But let's talk about that dreaded "spidery" phase as you await your next refill. Sure, the extensions look stunning fresh out of the studio, but over time, individual lashes start bidding adieu, creating unsightly gaps. Unfortunately, there's not much you can do; you're left waiting for your next appointment. However, if you take on the role of your own lash stylist, you won't need to wait for anyone or anything! (What a BOSS BABE!). Even if a segment happens to come loose, you'll have everything you need to reattach it yourself. 

How much do lash extensions cost?

This one's easy. Professional lash extensions can cost anywhere between 100 to 300 dollars, and that's each month, depending on the method. The EasyPeasyFalsies Box from GirlGotLashes is priced at €36,90. It includes 5 pairs of lash extensions, each lasting you 5-7 days, giving you the same effect for just a fraction of the price.

Will eyelash extensions harm my natural lashes?

Permanent lash extensions from the studio are designed to last up to 3 weeks and require a much stronger adhesive compared to GirlGotLashes extensions, which are meant to last up to a week. The aggressive adhesive used for professional extensions can cause irritation, which is why they must be applied by trained lash technicians in a studio, with the client's eyes closed.

Our glue, on the other hand, is suitable for non-commercial use, safe for non-professionals, gentle, and can be applied without risk below the natural lash line to attach the extensions without any risk - it's even safe for open-eye application. To remove, apply LET IT GO Remover liquid on and around your lash extensions and let it sit briefly (20-30 seconds should do it). Gently brush or slide the extensions away from your lashes.

After removing the extensions, use a fine micro-brush to easily comb out any remaining glue from your natural lashes. This process minimizes any damage to your own lashes.

Pro Tip: For overnight lash love, apply coconut or castor oil to your natural lashes using a spoolie. It's super nourishing! Then, the next morning, apply a new set of lash extensions. Before you do so, remember to cleanse your natural lashes with micellar water to remove any oils.


Ultimately, it boils down to personal preference. If you're comfortable with a 3-week appointment schedule, enjoy the dedicated time and expense, then studio lash extensions might be your top pick.

BUT, if your prefer beautifying yourself at home as part of a pamper routine, delight in experimenting with different lash looks, and want to save both time and money, then GirlGotLashes extensions are perfect for you! Give them a try and let your own experience be the judge!
